  • Physical Geodesy

    'Physical Geodesy' by Heiskanen and Moritz, published in 1967, has for a long time been considered as the standard introduction to its field. The enormous progress since then, however, required a complete reworking. While basic material could be retained other parts required a complete update. This concerns, above all, the adaptation to the fact ...

  • Introduction to Physical Oceanography

    Written by a renowned fluid dynamicist specializing in computational methods (particularly in turbulence), this introductory text addresses the subject of dynamic oceanography from a mathematical approach. The book begins with the basic equations of motion in integral form and covers such essential topics as geostropic flow, barotropic and ...

  • Physics and Modelling of Wind Erosion

    This book provides a comprehensive summary of the recent developments in wind erosion research and a clear outline of its future directions. The physics of wind erosion, from particle entrainment to transport and deposition, is described with rigor from the viewpoints of fluid dynamics and soil physics. The techniques for quantitative wind- ...

  • Atmospheric Thermodynamics: Elementary Physics and Chemistry

    This textbook presents a uniquely integrated approach in linking both physics and chemistry to the study of atmospheric thermodynamics. The book explains the classical laws of thermodynamics, focuses on various fluid systems, and, recognising the increasing importance of chemistry in the meteorological and climate sciences, devotes a chapter to ...

  • Water Treatment Unit Processes: Physical and Chemical

    The unit process approach, common in the field of chemical engineering, was introduced about 1962 to the field of environmental engineering. An understanding of unit processes is the foundation for continued learning and for designing treatment systems. The time is ripe for a new textbook that delineates the role of unit process principles in ...

  • Integrating Economics, Ecology and Thermodynamics

    Economies are open systems embedded in an ecosystem with which they exchange matter and energy. Interactions among these systems are vital for each system's performance and are constrained by the laws of physics. This volume pays tribute to economy--environment interactions simultaneously from an economic, ecological and physical perspective. ...

  • Integration of Information for Environmental Security

    In case of security threats there is a need for temporal access to complete, updated, reliable information, in a dedicated form, is an essential prerequisite to effectively counter security threats. Currently the necessary information exists in a multitude of forms and formats geographically and physically scattered over different countries, ...

  • Urban Hydroinformatics: Data, Models and Decision Support for Integrated Urban Water Management

    Urban Hydroinformatics: Data, Models and Decision Support for Integrated Urban Water Management is an introduction to hydroinformatics applied to urban water management. It shows how to make the best use of information and communication technologies for manipulating information to manage water in the urban environment. The book covers the ...

  • Experimental Methods in Wastewater Treatment

    Over the past twenty years, the knowledge and understanding of wastewater treatment has advanced extensively and moved away from empirically based approaches to a fundamentally-based first principles approach embracing chemistry, microbiology, and physical and bioprocess engineering, often involving experimental laboratory work and techniques. ...

  • Soil and Water Contamination

    Soil and Water Contamination, 2nd Edition is the first textbook that treats soil and water pollution issues from a geographical/spatial perspective at point, local, regional, and catchment scales. It links up very well to recent environmental policy and legislation in the field of soil and water pollution, e.g. European Water Framework Directive. ...

  • Global Dynamics of the Earth

    This volume opens up new perspectives on the physics of the Earth's interior for graduate students and researchers working in the fields of geophysics and geodesy. It looks at our planet in an integrated fashion, linking the physics of its interior to the geophysical and geodetic techniques that record, over a broad spectrum of spatial ...

  • Introduction to Environmental Remote Sensing

    This book is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the volumes of the same name published in 1974 and 1981. It provides its readers with a single, self-contained, fully-integrated and modern treatment of environmental remote sensing, progressing logically from the physical principles on which it is based, and the technologies and ...

  • Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics: 36th Volume

    Forty-two peer reviewed papers present the latest research in: • Residual stress effects on fatigue and fracture• Multiscale and physics-based approaches• Reactor components and materials• Fatigue crack growth • Predicting the effects of elevated temperatures and environment • Fatigue and fracture of specific ...

  • Chemistry of Ozone in Water and Wastewater Treatment

    Even though ozone has been applied for a long time for disinfection and oxidation in water treatment, there is lack of critical information related to transformation of organic compounds. This has become more important in recent years, because there is considerable concern about the formation of potentially harmful degradation products as well as ...

  • Computational River Dynamics

    This comprehensive text on the fundamentals of modeling flow and sediment transport in rivers treats both the physical principles and numerical methods for various degrees of complexity. It covers 1-D, 2-D (both depth- and width-averaged), and 3-D models, as well as the integration and coupling of these models. The volume includes a broad ...
